It's partly my fault as I didn't have the same paths as the other
patches, but at steps 2 and 3 you need

cd /usr/src/mailman-2.1.18-1/Mailman
patch -p0 < ../../Mailbox.py.patch

Or you could just do

patch Mailman/Mailbox.py < ../Mailbox.py.patch
in the /usr/src/mailman-2.1.18-1 directory.

See 'man patch'
